Emma Wallace recognizes the simple appeal of the jumpsuit and has used her intuitive design flair to create a range of jumpsuits that are touched with her signature look and feel. Wanting to emphasize that there is a big difference between a jumpsuit and a boiler suit, Emma chose to focus on using more sumptuous materials combined with the traditional practicality and comfort that the basic jumpsuit design offers. For example, the Satin boiler suit from her range is a casual jumpsuit with a loose-fit that is drawn in at the waist, wrist and ankle cuffs with drawstrings. Emma included an eye-catching and stylish open eyelet design on the back of the jumpsuit design. The antique satin luxe material used gives a more delicate and feminine feel to the design that could be the perfect casual outfit for any modern woman.

Traditionally, a jumpsuit is a one-piece garment that cover’s up the arms and legs. Dating back to 1919, it was first created to be a practical and functional garment to wear while jumping out of planes with a parachute. Back then they used more rugged and robust materials that were not known for their softness or comfort. The practical jumpsuit design was quickly adapted to become a boiler suit – a looser fitting jumpsuit that was worn by men that stoked coal-fired boiler engines, hence the name ‘boiler suit’ being coined. Female munitions workers adopted the boiler suit during WWII, where the design was altered to be more accommodating for women’s figures. The boiler suits more closely resembled the original jumpsuit design with a more form-fitting cut and bloomer-style legs. It was because of it’s more slimmer cut that the jumpsuit was the first practical workwear garment to break into the fashion world and gain a loyal following.
British born designer Emma Wallace is pleased to be re-invigorating the iconic jumpsuit design with her own unique style twist to bring it bang up to date as a ‘must-have’ piece in every discerning modern woman’s wardrobe.
